Good Day To You All
I Bring The Subject Of Grip Glue Or Alternative Glue To You all..
I Am Changing My Grips And Have Read On Different Forums About Grip Glue Vs. Everything Else..
So I'm Asking This Forum For Advice.....



I've always used gasoline on rubber grips. Swish it around inside the grips, then slide them on the handlebars and once the gas evaporates, the grips stick to the bars really well. These days where there are billet aluminum grips I'm guessing some kind of glue would be required.

Aqua-Net hairspray has worked for me through the years. Tried more expensive hairsprays, but the cheap ass Aqua-Net seems to work the best.



WOW! Your picture is...umm...I just don't know what to say!

Why?

My Avatar is a pencil drawing my daughter did of me. Not her best work by far.

She got the wild-eye look and beard perfect. I think she nailed it.

Nothing straightens my head out better than an entirely crooked road.
